Prunus orthosepala, Koehne. Fig. 3224. A much- branched spreading bush about 4 or 5 ft. high, with young branchlets chestnut-colored: lvs. oblong-lanceolate to obovate-lanceolate, about 2 in. or less long, narrowed at base, at apex acute or acuminate; glabrous and shining, serrate; petiole glandless or with 1 or 2 glands near apex: fls. white, or pink with age, about 1/2in. broad, on glabrous pedicels; calyx-lobes oblong- obtuse, ciliate on margins, glabrous or nearly so on the exterior: fr. late, globose, about 1 in. diam., red, white- dotted, with bloom; stone oval, rounded at apex and slightly pointed at base, the surface somewhat rugose. —Not clearly known in the wild, but probably from Kans. to Texas. The Laire, grown in Kans. for the fr., is perhaps to be referred here. The species was founded on plants grown in the Arnold Arboretum from seeds said to have been sent from S. Texas. G.F. 7:187 (reduced in Fig. 3224).
